The future has an ancient heart
Pre-adolescent children: tsunami on the way. And the adults?

Long experience as CEO and General Manager with 12+ years as CEO South Europe at Triumph International where I led the rebranding, opening of new channels, retail development and multi-channel. I have a background in Sales & Marketing FMCG gained over 12+ years at Procter & Gamble and 5 years at KraftHeinz, where I held roles of increasing responsibility both in Italy and Europe.

After this long managerial experience, in 2019 I entered as a Mentor at Fashion Technology Accelerator, an early-stage start-up incubator. Here I met Italian Artisan, a B2B Marketplace that connects Italian manufacturing excellences with Fashion Brands worldwide in order to promote the internationalization of the many small Italian artisans and producers who find it difficult to find new international clients.

I immediately believed in the Italian Artisan entrepreneurial project, and in September 2020 I became Co-Founder and CEO. Since then, Italian Artisan has been growing at triple digits, we have over 10,000 registered brands on the platform looking for authentic Italian producers and over 650 producers who rely on us to find new customers. I am associated with Women & Technologies, where until 2019 I held the role of President and winner of the prestigious Technovisionaries 2017 award.

I am also a member of InTheBoardroom, listed by StartupItalia in the "Unstoppable Women. The women who are changing Italy" and a member of NED Community.
